ABSTRACT

An experiment in “self-historicizing,” this personal article looks back onWriting Cultureafter 25 years. It asks how these years can be narrated historically. It locates the book with reference to postwar experiences of decolonization and globalization, and specifically in a transitional moment between the radical 1960s and the neoliberal 1990s.
